Lakeland, FLA. (Dec. 2, 2021) – Qgiv, a leading provider of nonprofit fundraising technology, had a record-breaking Giving Tuesday for the eighth consecutive year. Following a year of 108% growth, Qgiv clients sustained giving momentum in 2021 and raised even more this year, increasing the total by another 2.5%. This marks Qgiv’s most successful fundraising day in company history.
“This year’s Giving Tuesday results show us that the outpouring of generosity in response to the pandemic hasn’t ceased,” said Todd Baylis, CEO and co-founder of Qgiv, Inc. “Last year we saw an unprecedented increase in dollars raised and individual donations made on Giving Tuesday. This year, our nonprofit clients were able to maintain the same fundraising totals and more. The adoption of online fundraising tools, increased digital communication with donors, and more, has helped nonprofits maintain crisis response levels of giving seen in 2020. We’re immensely proud of our clients’ Giving Tuesday fundraising success.”
Fundraising growth experienced on the Qgiv platform correlates with the increased adoption of online fundraising tools by nonprofits since the onset of the pandemic and national increases in online giving.
